  • Numeracy and memory for risk probabilities and risk outcomes depicted on
           cigarette warning labels.
    • Abstract: Objective: Greater numeracy is associated with higher likelihood to quit smoking. We examined whether numeracy supports learning of numeric health-risk information and, in turn, greater risk perceptions and quit intentions. Method: Adult smokers (N = 696) viewed text warnings with numeric risk information four times each in one of three warning-label types (text-only, low-emotion pictorial [i.e., with image], high-emotion pictorial). They completed posttest measures immediately or 6 weeks later. Emotional reactions to warnings were reported the second time participants viewed the warnings. Numeracy, memory for risk probabilities and risk outcomes, risk perceptions, and quit intentions were assessed postexposures. Results: Memory for risk probabilities and risk outcomes depended on warning-label type and posttest timing. Consistent with memory-consolidation theory, memory for high- versus low-emotion labels was lower immediately, but declined less for high-than low-emotion labels. Label memory was similar between conditions at 6 weeks. Numeracy predicted overall superior memory (especially for risk probabilities) controlling for health literacy and education. It also indirectly predicted greater risk perceptions and quit intentions via memory. In exploratory analyses, however, the superior recall of risk probabilities of smoking among those higher in numeracy was associated with lower risk perceptions. Conclusions: Numeracy is associated with superior risk memory, which relates to greater risk perceptions and quit intentions. More numerate and educated smokers may be better able to quit due to their superior learning of smoking’s risks. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2020 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Relationship quality and 5-year mortality risk.
    • Abstract: Objective: The present study examined positive and negative aspects of relationship quality with one’s spouse or partner as predictors of mortality and the role of gender in moderating this link. Method: Data were drawn from 2 waves, 5 years apart, of the National Social Life, Health, and Aging Project (N = 1,734). Positive aspects of relationship quality (frequency of opening up to the partner to talk about worries and relying on the partner) and negative aspects (frequency of the partner making too many demands and criticism by the partner) were assessed. Survival/mortality status was recorded at the time of Wave 2 data collection 5 years later (1,567 alive; 167 deceased). Covariates included sociodemographic variables, relationship type, health status, and the network size of close family relationships and friendships. Results: Logistic regression analyses showed that negative relationship quality with one’s spouse or partner was associated with significantly higher odds for mortality after 5 years (odds ratio [OR] = 1.20, 95% CI [1.03, 1.38], p < .001), after including the statistical covariates. Also, age, gender, education, self-rated health, and medication use were significantly related to mortality. Propensity score matching replicated these findings. Follow-up analyses revealed that criticism from one’s spouse or partner, in particular, was linked to a higher mortality risk (OR = 1.44, 95% CI [1.10, 1.88]). Gender did not moderate the relationship-quality–mortality link. Conclusions: Negative relationship quality, notably, criticism received from one’s spouse or partner, heightens older adults’ risk of mortality. These results suggest the value of developing interventions that target reducing expressed criticism in couple relationships. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2020 APA, all rights reserved)

  • A cluster randomized controlled trial of a positive physical activity
           intervention.
    • Abstract: Objective: Due to global urbanization, technological advancements, and increasing convenience in daily activities, reduced energy expenditure in all aspects of life has become a major public health concern. A positive physical activity (PPA) intervention was developed to promote physical activity and fitness among Hong Kong families. PPA utilizes positive affective attitudes to circumvent barriers to health behavior change by helping families associate feelings of enjoyment with physical activity. Zero-Time Exercise (ZTEx) was introduced and promoted as a foot-in-the-door approach. Method: Using a community-based collaborative approach, the research team worked with social service organizations, a government department, and schools to implement a cluster randomized controlled crossover trial at a citywide scale. A total of 1,983 eligible participants from 1,467 families were recruited from all 18 districts in Hong Kong. Data were collected using structured questionnaires and physical fitness assessments at preintervention and 1-month and 3-month follow-up. Results: PPA was effective in increasing ZTEx and ZTEx with family members at 1-month and 3-month follow-up and in improving balance and endurance at 3-month follow-up. Semistructured focus groups provided further support for the intervention effectiveness and added in-depth insights into the participants’ motivational, interpersonal, and affective experiences. Conclusion: The results not only shed light on the intervention’s effectiveness for physical activity and fitness but also demonstrated that the community-based collaborative approach was successful in engaging relevant stakeholders in an active and fruitful partnership with effective capacity building for program development.

  • Impulsivity and midlife cardiometabolic risk: The role of maladaptive
           health behaviors.
    • Abstract: Objective: The present study evaluated distinct facets of impulsivity related to cardiometabolic risk (CMR) to identify specific behavioral mechanisms driving these relationships. Method: Community adults (N = 1,295) between 30 and 54 years old (53% female, 84% White) completed a battery of impulsivity measures, reported their engagement in health behaviors over the past week (i.e., cigarette smoking, alcohol use, physical activity, and dietary intake), and were assessed for CMR factors (i.e., blood pressure, insulin resistance, adiposity, and blood lipids). Structural equation modeling was used to estimate previously established hierarchical models of distinct facets of impulsivity and CMR. Indirect effects through the observed health behaviors were examined for each association between the latent impulsivity factors identified and the latent CMR factor. Results: Neuroticism/negative emotionality was the only latent impulsivity factor directly related to heightened CMR (β = 0.09, 95% confidence interval [CI] [0.01, 0.16], p = .020). Extraversion/positive emotionality indirectly related to lower CMR through greater physical activity (β = −0.04, 95% CI [−0.06, −0.02], p < .001), and measures of inhibition (β = 0.02, 95% CI [0.001, 0.04], p = .045) and delay discounting (β = 0.08, 95% CI [0.001, 0.15], p = .049) indirectly related to CMR through saturated fat intake. Conclusions: These findings indicate that distinct facets of impulsivity differentially relate to CMR through varied behavioral pathways and identify physical activity and saturated fat intake as being particularly important health behaviors to target when tailoring treatment approaches to the unique behavioral characteristics of individuals high on certain facets of impulsivity.

  • Daily illness appraisal and collaboration in couples with type 1 diabetes.
    • Abstract: Objective: Dyadic coping theories posit that spousal involvement may benefit illness management through collaborative and supportive (C&S) strategies and shared illness appraisals. Illness appraisals have only been examined as individual differences rather than fluctuating daily as individuals manage the difficult Type 1 diabetes regimen. The study examined how daily illness appraisals of individuals with Type 1 diabetes and their spouses were linked to spouses’ daily C&S strategies and whether C&S strategies were most beneficial for daily diabetes outcomes when they occurred in the context of shared illness appraisals. Method: Couples (N = 199) in which one person had Type 1 diabetes (M age patients = 46.81; 52.3% female; spouses = 46.40, 47.5% female) completed a 14-day diary assessing illness appraisals (ranging from nonshared through shared) and spouses’ C&S strategies. Patients reported daily self-regulation failures, self-care behaviors, and perceived coping effectiveness. Daily blood glucose was gathered from glucometers. Results: Multilevel models indicated both within-person and between-person effects of patients’ and spouses’ illness appraisals on C&S strategies with higher shared illness appraisals associated with greater C&S strategies. Greater shared illness appraisals were associated with fewer self-regulation failures and better self-care. C&S strategies were associated with lower self-care and higher blood glucose levels. Appraisal interacted with C&S strategies such that C&S strategies were associated with more self-regulation failures, lower self-care, and lower perceived coping effectiveness when patients reported lower shared appraisals. Conclusions: Results suggest that C&S strategies may be more detrimental for diabetes management when individuals view diabetes as less shared.

  • Affect variability and inflammatory markers in midlife adults.
    • Abstract: Objective: Higher affect variability (the extent to which individuals vary in their affect over time) has been associated with poorer health indicators, but associations with inflammation are less well understood. The purpose of the present study was to examine whether affect variability was associated with inflammation in ways consistent with the stability theory or the fragile positive affect theory, and whether associations were linear or nonlinear. Method: In a racially diverse sample (N = 231; Aged 25–65; 65% female; 62% Black; 25% Hispanic), we examined whether positive affect (PA) and negative affect (NA) variability exhibited linear or quadratic associations with circulating inflammatory cytokines (a composite measure comprised of IL-1β, IL-4, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, TNF-α, IFN-γ), and C-reactive protein (CRP) and whether person-mean affect moderated these associations. Affective states were assessed using ecological momentary assessments (EMAs) 5 times per day for 2 weeks, with a blood draw at the end of the EMA period. Individual standard deviations of affective states indexed affect variability. Results: A quadratic association indicated that moderate NA variability was associated with lower CRP. There was evidence of significant moderation by linear associations with PA only: For those with higher person-mean PA, PA variability was positively associated with the cytokine composite. Both person-mean PA and person-mean NA moderated quadratic associations, such that for those with high person-mean affect, both high and low affect variability was associated with systemic inflammation. Conclusion: Results are in line with fragile affect theory suggesting that associations between affect variability and health indicators may vary by person-mean affect.

  • Psychometric properties of the Adulthood Trauma Inventory.
    • Abstract: Objective: Psychological trauma is an important public health problem, but previous measurement tools have primarily focused on childhood traumatic events while trauma exposure in adulthood (>18 years of age) has received less attention. The purpose of this study was to examine the psychometric properties of an instrument for assessment of psychological trauma in adulthood, the Adulthood Trauma Inventory (ATI). Method: Participants (n = 893) completed the ATI, a 33-item questionnaire modeled after the Early Trauma Inventory-Self Report (ETI-SR), assessing traumatic events occurring after 18 years of age. Participants also completed instruments to assess depression, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and early trauma (ETI-SR). Internal consistency and item response theory metrics were examined. Results: ATI total score (number of items endorsed) yielded the greatest internal consistency (Cronbach’s α = .77) and was significantly (p < .0001) correlated with indices of PTSD (ρ = 0.40), depression (ρ = 0.31), and early trauma (ρ = 0.56). Area under the curve and accuracy values ranged from 0.65 and 70% (depression) to 0.75 and 95% (current PTSD). Conclusions: The ATI is a valid measure of adult psychological trauma that may be useful for both clinical assessment and research involving the long-term effects on the individual and psychobiology.

  • Type D personality and global positioning system tracked social behavior
           in patients with cardiovascular disease.
    • Abstract: Objective: Social behavior (e.g., loneliness, isolation) has been indicated as an important risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Recent studies show that Type D personality might be an important predictor of social behavior. Hence, the current exploratory study aims to examine, using ecological assessment, whether Type D personality is associated with a lower likelihood to engage in social encounters in patients with cardiovascular disease. Method: Cardiac patients who participated in the Do CHANGE (Phase 2) trial were included in current analysis. As part of the Do CHANGE intervention, real-life data were collected in the intervention group using the MOVES app, which was installed on patients’ mobile phones. For a period of 6 months, Global Positioning System (GPS) data from the participating patients were collected. From the GPS data, 3 target variables were computed: (a) general activity level, (b) social variety, and (c) social opportunity. Results: A total of 70 patients were included in the analysis. Patients with a Type D personality had lower scores on the “social opportunity” variable compared to non–Type D patients (F = 6.72; p = .01). Type D personality was associated with lower social participation after adjusting for depression and anxiety. No association between Type D personality and general activity or behavioral variety was observed. Conclusions: This is the first study to use an ecological measure to assess social behavior of cardiac patients with a Type D personality. Results show that Type D personality might be associated with lower social engagement, which could, in turn, partly explain its association with adverse health outcomes.

  • Biopsychosocial predictors of trajectories of postpartum sexual function
           in first-time mothers.
    • Abstract: Objective: The postpartum period is a vulnerable time for sexual health, yet the relationship between biopsychosocial factors and sexual function over time remains unclear. Our aim was to identify trajectories of postpartum sexual function in first-time mothers (N = 646) and examine associations with biopsychosocial factors. Methods: Biopsychosocial factors were assessed at delivery and 3 months postpartum. Sexual function was assessed during pregnancy, 3, 6, and 12 months postpartum using the Female Sexual Function Index. Latent class growth analysis was conducted to identify distinct sexual function trajectories. Multinomial logistic regressions examined associations between biopsychosocial factors and membership in the trajectories. Results: Three trajectories were identified: 52% of women reported minimal sexual function problems at 3 months postpartum and improved the least over time, 35% of women reported moderate sexual function problems at 3 months and improved the most over time, and 13% of women reported marked sexual function problems at 3 months and improved somewhat over time. Biomedical factors were not significantly related to trajectory membership. Higher sexual distress at 3 months postpartum was associated with increased odds of being in the moderate and marked sexual function problems subgroups, whereas higher sexual function in pregnancy was associated with decreased odds of being in these subgroups. Lower depressive symptoms and higher relationship satisfaction was associated with reduced odds of being in the marked problems subgroup. Conclusions: Improvement in sexual function postpartum is heterogeneous. Psychosocial, but not biomedical factors were significantly associated with the trajectories. This information may be integrated into psychoeducation, and for informing earlier assessment and intervention practices. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2020 APA, all rights reserved)
